Sunshine ~ Lawn Mowing ~ Picture of the Day ~ Tornadoes ~ Fish Fry Tartar Sauce ~ National Cherry Cheesecake Day

Good 46º clear sunny morning. 
Another good day weather-wise yesterday. Sun, blue sky, and we warmed to 81º.

Yesterday I got the front lawn mowed. Been a long time since I have done that using my riding lawnmower. Mike has done it for the last few years!! He's still healing and it will be awhile before he's back to normal. I have a call into a young man who does yard work and he's coming over tomorrow to check out the property and let me know the costs.

Picture of the Day .... pig rock!

Interesting about tornadoes.........

A tornado is a violently rotating column of air that is in contact with both the surface of the earth and a cumulonimbus cloud or, in rare cases, the base of a cumulus cloud. They are often referred to as twisters or cyclones, although the word cyclone is used in meteorology, in a wider sense, to name any closed low pressure circulation.

No other country in the world has more tornadoes than the United States. In an average year, 800 tornadoes are reported in the United States, resulting in 80 deaths and over 1,500 injuries. Tornadoes are defined as violently rotating columns of air extending from a thunderstorms to the ground. Tornadoes are found most frequently in the United States east of the Rocky Mountains.
While most tornadoes (69%) have winds of less than 100 miles an hour, they can be much much stronger. Violent tornadoes (winds greater than 205 miles an hour) account for only 2% of all tornadoes, they cause 70% of all tornado deaths. In 1931, a tornado in Minnesota lifted an 83-ton railroad train with 117 passengers and carried it more than 80 feet! Once a tornado in Oklahoma carried a motel sign 30 miles and dropped it in Arkansas! In 1975 a Mississippi tornado carried a home freezer more than one mile!
